If you are anything like my mom, and will only drink loose tea, then this product is for you. She hates tea bags, and avoids them for many reasons: taste isn't as good, glue adhesive in the tea bags, messy...etc, etc, etc.
She brings a teapot to work every day to make tea, but it is a hassle because she has to bring it home every night to clean.
I saw this teastick in San Diego and thought it was perfect for her. The teastick concept is simple:
1. Scoop it
2. Slide it
3. Steep it
It works great, and it is easy to clean. This teastick is even dish washer safe.
Now my mom can make and enjoy her tea one cup at a time...and in style! (Wow, I sound like an infomercial, don't I?). The teastick is best for small to medium whole tea leaves. Tea that is too fine may seep through the holes of the teastick.
I found mine at the San Diego Museum of Art, but you can also buy it on the Gamila website.
